I've written about actors that I would watch read the phone book, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro are on that list. In Righteous Kill, these men play partners on the NYPD. A serial killer is murdering heinous criminals who are free on technicalities. This is a film where no one is who they appear to be, and the ending has plenty of twists. The strong performances are the highlights of this film. Pacino really shines. The end is dragged out, but this is still a good crime thriller, with two true film legends leading the way. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go watch The Godfather Part II, one of my favorite films featuring Pacino and De Niro.
